The 2021-22 School Year marks my family’s 8th year at BMES and my 2nd year as PTO president. My kids are in Kinder, 1st, and 5th grade. We really love our town and out school community. I grew up in the red rock desert in St. George, Utah. After earning a BFA in Industrial Design, I worked as a product designer and IT project manager. I started a new role as a stay at home mom when we moved to Longmont, but I still take on the occasional photography or graphic design gig to help scratch my creative itch. I love food, travel, art, LEGO, music, hiking, sports, reading, and spending time with my family exploring Colorado.
Hello BMES families! I am so excited to serve on the board for my 5th year and look forward to meeting many of you at our events through the year. I have one of my boys in 3rd grade at BMES this year and my oldest is starting 6th grade at Altona. Although I am a stay-at-home mom now, I have worked in the consulting and startup worlds for many years and graduated from the University of Richmond in 1999. Since college I’ve lived in San Diego, Birmingham, Boulder, Sacramento, and now Longmont (hopefully for good). I am passionate about making our school a great place to learn and work and I rely on our partnership with parents and teachers to make that happen.
This is my 2nd year as VP of Communications for BMES PTO. I grew up in a suburb outside of Houston, TX and went to college at Southwest Texas State University (now TX State) in San Marcos, Texas for 4 years and after a move to Atlanta, graduated at Georgia State University in Atlanta with a bachelor in fine arts, Interior Design degree. After college I worked as an Interior Designer for Healthcare spaces, but took a sabbatical after my daughter was born. I have stayed at home with my kiddos (6th and 4th graders) since 2011 and recently started contracting for an online Interior Design platform. My family and I have moved to Colorado in March of 2019 and are loving the area! We enjoy camping, hiking, taking our pup, Duke, on walks, and generally just being outside…Although my southern self is still getting used to these Colorado winters! I have a heart for volunteering, and love anything that has to do with design, so VP of communications is a great fit for me to unleash my creative side!

This is my 2nd year holding a PTO Board position, though I’ve been active with the BMES PTO for more than 5 years now, in a few different areas, with my main focus being the Scholastic Book Fair. I also love to volunteer my time in my sons’ classrooms and in the school library. My family relocated to Longmont from Westfield, IN in the summer of 2016, so this is my family’s 6th year at BMES. My sons are in 6th grade and 3rd grade this year. I grew up in the Midwest (IL and IN) and attended Marian University in Indianapolis, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I taught kindergarten for a few years, but decided to become a stay-at-home mom when my younger son was born. I am extremely passionate about education and am fiercely dedicated to supporting our students, teachers, and staff to the best of my ability. I feel very lucky to be able to volunteer my time at such an amazing school, and I’m thrilled my family is part of the BMES community.
